Pinus aristata is a 5-needle pine. The thick bluish green needles clump together in such a way it is not immediately apparent how many needles are in each bundle. The needles are dotted with white resin. This is natural; there is nothing wrong with the plant. The white resin flecks are a great identification feature!
